In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about how to dismiss and remove party members in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Updated on August 18, 2023: There is a brand new method to removing custom party members in Baldur’s Gate 3. We have made another updated to our guide with brand new information.

Prerequisites: This process involves modding and is not the official way to remove characters. While the commands are built into BG3, they’re not intended for this use. Always back up your game and understand the risks before proceeding.

    • Start BG3 and load your game.
    • Empty or transfer the inventory of the character you wish to remove.

    • The Larian launcher might display a “Data mismatch” warning. Close the warning, and the launcher will refresh. Click “Play” to start the game.
  4. Prepare for Character Removal:
    • Load your saved game (ensure you’re playing solo).
    • Select the custom character you wish to remove (their portrait should be highlighted in white).
    • Alt-tab to the command prompt/console window.
  5. Retrieve the Character’s UUID:
    • In the console, type the following commands, pressing enter after each:scssCopy codeosi print(GetHostCharacter())
    • Copy the UUID that appears. This is the unique identifier for the character you’re removing.
  6. Execute the Removal Commands:
    • In the console, input the following commands one by one, pressing enter after each. Replace “UUID-HERE” with the UUID you copied, ensuring it’s wrapped in quotes:scssCopy codeosi MakeNPC("UUID-HERE") SetOnStage("UUID-HERE", 0) Osi.DB_Players:Delete("UUID-HERE") Osi.DB_Avatars:Delete("UUID-HERE") Osi.PROC_CheckPartyFull()
  7. Final Steps:
    • The custom character should now be removed. Save your game with a name like “Post-Delete” and then exit.
    • Navigate to the folder from Step 2 and delete the two files you added earlier. This will prevent the launcher from displaying the “Data mismatch” warning in the future.

Updated on August 4, 2023: This guide was updated to add more clarity to the topic after the release of the final build of Baldur’s Gate 3. You will find everything you need to know on how to dismiss party members but now we also have detailed on how to remove dead party members in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How Do I Dismiss Party Members In Baldur’s Gate 3

The first thing you’ll need to do is to arrive at a camp. This will ensure that all of them are rested up and have their cooldowns. From there, you simply need to walk up to a companion you wish to dismiss and ask them to stay at the camp. But know that some of your companions will find it disheartening but at the end of the day, it’s a necessary evil.

NPCs in Baldur’s Gate 3 are life-like. They come with unique personalities, backgrounds, and approve/disapprove of your decisions in the game. Therefore, it’s important to understand that dismissing a party member will sometimes upset them. This is particularly important when it comes to trying to romance certain companions.


However, since every companion is equipped with unique abilities, skills, and equipment, you shouldn’t always try to carry one party through the entirety of the game. Depending on questlines, some companions may be better than the others and that’s where you’ll need to dismiss certain companions. But how do you do it? The entire process is fairly simple.

Once you’ve successfully dismissed a companion, head over to the one you wish to accompany you and recruit them. As simple as that!

How To Remove Dead And Player Made Party Members In Baldur’s Gate 3

Removing dead party members in Baldur’s Gate 3 is not quite as straightforward as in some other RPGs, where fallen companions may disappear automatically or through a quick menu option. However, there are still several ways you can manage the unfortunate demise of a party member in this game.

  1. Revive them: First and foremost, the ideal solution to a dead party member is to revive them. If you have a “Scroll of Revivify” in your inventory, you can use it to bring a dead party member back to life with 1 hit point. Clerics and Paladins can also learn the “Revivify” spell at level 5, which has the same effect. Be aware that in the case of a TPK (Total Party Kill), or if the dead character was the last one standing, you’ll need to reload a previous save.
  2. Use the camp: If you have already used all your “Scroll of Revivify” or can’t revive the party member for any reason, you can try to go to the camp. Click on the campfire icon to rest, and all dead party members will be automatically resurrected.
  3. Removing permanently: If you decide to remove a dead party member from your group permanently, you can simply leave them where they fell. However, you might want to first take any valuable items they were carrying, as you won’t be able to retrieve them later.
  4. Removing Player Made Characters: Load an old save; this is the only solution to remove dead or inactive party members in multilayer.

Important: If you are in multiplayer and you’re friend has died or left the game, there seems to be an issue with removing them from the party. Currently, the best way to deal with this situation is to load up an old save, one that was before they joined your party. This is an issue in the multiplayer and so far there isn’t any fix for this. The only thing you can do is load an old save to get rid of party members.


Remember that your choices in Baldur’s Gate 3 can have significant consequences, so think carefully before deciding to leave a party member for dead. If you’re having trouble keeping your party alive, consider adjusting your combat strategies or exploring other areas to gain experience and become more powerful.
